Midway Chess Club finds permanent home

Jul 31, 2009, 7:50 AM |

Some of you may be aware that the Midway Chess Club is only 4 months old. But, in our nascent stages we have already had two speed tournaments, one USCF rated tourney, and increased our membership.

Well, yesterday we made a big jump. We secured our own meeting place! We have work to do to be able to open the doors but by October we expect to be ready to go.

Some of the things to look forward to are as follows:

  1. Lessons
  2. Tournaments
  3. Rated games
  4. Speed Chess
  5. Lending library
  6. Free Internet access for online chess
  7. Classes on becoming a chess teacher
  8. FIDE rated tournaments
  9. Job training for U.S. Veterans
  10. and much more!!

But all good things have to start somewhere. Take a look at the photo's and you will see what I mean. We need to paint, clean, set up wireless network, rewire some electricity and ...

Any volunteers to help? Donations to give? Please send me an email to william@midwaychessclub.org

You can be part of creating a great, welcoming, chess environment for everyone!
